Corvettes Limited Of Bowling Green, Kentucky, Inc.

Thank You for visiting the official Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green website. We’re glad you stopped by to learn more about Who We Are and What We Do at Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green.

Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green, Kentucky, Inc. (as it is officially called) is a car club centered around the Chevrolet Corvette. Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green was formed in September, 1980, just before the “rumored” Corvette Assembly Plant moved from St. Louis to Bowling Green. At that time there was a perceived need for an organization like Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green to create a means to focus an incredible amount of Pride and Fellowship around the Corvette in our area.

Pride stemmed from the fact that the only Corvette Assembly Plant in the world had chosen Bowling Green, Kentucky, to be its home and that hundreds of Corvette people were moving into our area from St. Louis. They brought a great deal of pride in that they were the builders of Corvettes. That pride is contagious and Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green wanted to tap into that Pride. With the Assembly Plant came a new sense of “Community Connectedness”. The Corvette was no longer something that had to be loved from afar, it was now part of the Community. A Corvette club worthy of the Corvette had to be established in Bowling Green…thus Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green had its objective.

Over the past 33+ years many things have changed in the Corvette world. Both the Corvette Assembly Plant and Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green have been part of that change. We survived the changeover to unleaded gas and the government’s horsepower reduction efforts. We even made it through long hair and leisure suits, both of which were common at early Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green club meetings. On the positive side we have ushered in 3 new generations of Corvette evolution and we now enjoy the presence of the National Corvette Museum. My, how Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green has been blessed.

One thing has not changed…Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green’s love of the Corvette. But it takes more than love of the marque to keep a car club together for more than 30 years. It takes a desire to share experiences, expand knowledge, develop friendships and to enjoy good times. Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green provides an opportunity to share all these with a “family” that has a common bond…Corvette.

When many people moved from St. Louis to Bowling Green they left friends and family behind. This left a huge void in their lives. Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green helped fill that void for many of them. Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green was a place to meet new friends, learn about their new community and share their passion and pride of owning a Corvette. Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green club members work together, laugh together, disagree together and share love of Corvettes together because we are family.

One big member of the Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green family is the National Corvette Museum. We believe that the Corvette club that calls Bowling Green home must be 100% supportive of the National Corvette Museum. The NCM survives because of people and funds. Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green provides a great deal of both, especially people in the form of volunteers for NCM events. The NCM recognizes the contribution from Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green and is very appreciative.

Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green currently has over 180 members, some as far away as Australia.

We are focused on the objective of providing all Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green club members recognition and enjoyment while propagating the mystique of the Corvette. Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green is about having a good time, being involved in the community, acting as ambassadors and volunteers for the National Corvette Museum and presenting the Corvette as the basis for a common interest.

Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green is the only Corvette club in the world having the distinct honor and privilege of holding its regular meetings at the National Corvette Museum. When Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green began, meetings were held on the front steps of the local Chevrolet dealer. Today we gather in the Chevrolet Theater at the NCM. Corvettes Limited of Bowling Green meets the first Saturday of each month at 6:00 p.m. CST and we welcome visitors and guests to our general membership meetings.
